Blogger ID number? In running order?
November 10, 2005 6:44 PM   Subscribe

I hope you guys can settle an argument for me about Blogger. Each Blogger user has a unique profile id. eg XXXX is in running numbers. The smallest number is the earliest blog. ie belongs to Blogger's founder. XXXX stays with you, until you delete your account. There is no way to change it. Even if you change your user name, profile etc. My friend maintains that it changes with your username. So which is which? My Google-fu has failed me, for this instance.

I'm not familiar with blogger, but can't you just change your username or blog name and see if the number changes?

I just tried it.

I changed my username and my blog name and the number remains the same.

Why didn't you or your friend just try the experiment? It took me about 90 seconds!

Response by poster: we tried it. But the thing is. according to this faq:

it says at the bottom:

"You will need to update the list of members and their ID numbers anytime you add new people, or any time they change their display names. "

hence the confusion.

I assume if the names change then you would update the display names in the list, not the ID numbers.
